    Game Thread: Astros@Twins 8/4 1:10PM

    Astros: SP Brad Peacock

    LF Grossman
    2B Altuve
    C Castro
    1B Wallace
    DH Carter
    RF Krauss
    3B Dominquez
    CF Barnes
    SS Villar

    Twins: SP Mike Pelfrey

    2B Dozier
    RF Herrmann
    DH Mauer
    1B Morneau
    C Doumit
    LF Arcia
    CF Thomas
    3B Carroll
    SS Bernier

    Things to think about:

    1. Think about the Astros... They have played some bad baseball these past two games... We may think things are bad in Minnesota but things are much worse west of Galveston.

    2. Think about Bernier... In the lineup at SS again... It seems like Gardy might like this guy.

    3. Think about Colabello... I think about him a lot... He has tons of power but he isn't making enough contact. At his age... he has a short window to prove himself... If you have a short window... It stands to reason that you may press and try to do too much. He has no time to adjust to MLB Pitching... He has to do it right now and he isn't in the lineup.

    4. Think about Pelfrey... I think today is a test... Here's the Test... If he is throwing well... The Astros will prove to be no problem... If the Astros provide a problem for Pelfrey... He still has work to do. Let's see what happens.

    5. Think about Brevity... I struggle with Brevity... I go on and on... I always have... Mainly... I am confused by Brevity... For example... Shouldn't Monosyllabic be a much shorter word and for that matter... Shouldn't Abbreviate be much shorter as well.

    Floriman tweaked something in BP, that's why Bernie is starting.

    im sure thats true but I'd like to think his non-start yesterday was a direct result of not covering the steal that contributed to extra innings friday...

    I missed that, but if true should earn him a day on the bench as well.

    yep...runner on 1st, lefty up. Mauer up to throw down and nobody home. Gardy screamed at both he and dozier so as not to completely call him out but obviously his bag/bad. Pelfrey looks good for one!

    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    If Morneau tops 20 HR and 80 RBI by year's end does that impact our interest in re-signing him? Never mind, I just realized as I was typing it that I am beyond sick of talking about this.

    So if Morneau starts hitting well and the trade talk starts up again will he just back to ****ting the bed?

    Based on some of the things she was called in HS, I wouldn't want my daughter to have that last name.
